    Alphabet Movie Draft Playoffs - The Finals

    Kudos to our young commish, who put this together, and kept it going and on the rails for the better part of half a year. ... and his film taste ain't so bad either. That'll do pig. That'll do.

    what was the last movie you watched?

    Hey now, polls don't close for another 12 hours. Get out there and knock on some doors. Just so we're clear though, you're losing because you don't have a Blade Runner.

    what was the last movie you watched?

    Caught a number of films during the months this thread was shut down, but I can't immediately recall most of them. Suppose that says something of the impact they had. There were a few that really stuck with me though (or at least I watched recently enough to comment on): Do the Right Thing -...

    Alphabet Movie Draft Playoffs - The Finals

    This was a tough call for me, which is a little surprising considering Warhawk has Blade Runner 2049 and Pulp Fiction. Throw in John Wick, The Warriors, and a litany of popcorn munchers, and that's a great recipe for a good time. The Cap counters with Ghostbusters and a whole bunch of movies I...

    Alphabet Draft Playoffs - Final Four

    Bummer. My last minute get-out-the-vote move failed. Good luck Cap and Warhawk. Those are two good lists. Gonna be a tough choice in the finals.

    Alphabet Draft Playoffs - Final Four

    The bummer is Cap would have been my biggest fan if I wasn't facing off against him. Oh well, Warhawk and Cap were two of my top four picks (along with Padrino and KainLear/Turgenev) so I'm good with them facing off in the finals. Even if Turgenev's non-vote ends up being the difference ...

    Now that is some serious dedication. The only game I’ve ever played on multiple consoles is Chrono Trigger. Never actually owned it on the SNES (even though I rented it so much, it would have been cheaper to buy). Finished it several times back then, but when the chance to actually own a...

    I abandoned DONTNOD after slogging through the shockingly bland Remember Me. Shame too; that one had all the ingredients to be phenomenal. But was enough to convince me DONTNOD would be a team of exciting ideas and half-baked execution. Oh, and also: Doesn’t sound like THAT bad of a habit...

    I’m of the mind that this year hardly counts anyway. Was tough to feel confident when during “home” playoff games, I kept feeling the need to scan the dugout making sure Kirk Gibson wasn’t going to hobble out into the batter’s box.

    Alphabet Movie Draft Playoffs - Round 1 Bracket #2

    You make a great point. Maybe I could claim the “generation gap” defense at the time Harlem Nights was released, but that stance doesn’t hold water now that it’s 30 years later and I’ve sought out and watched films dating back to the 1890s. I’m not even certain why I was initially resistant to...

    Yeah, I've unfortunately never had the pleasure. Looks like a super chill zen game with a breezy, bright art style, and low stress series of mini-games cobbled together as a functional gameplay loop. Thought it was a low risk / high reward gamble dropping $3 betting I could figure out a work...

    That's really discouraging. Picked up Sid Meier's Pirates (2004) on a super sale through Steam, knowing it was Windows only, thinking I could find a way to make it work. Had my Mac partitioned with Windows 10, but that must have been removed when I had the screen repaired a few years ago. I've...

    Has anyone here used Wine to run a Windows game bought through Steam on a Mac?

    2020 Shelter in Place Alphabet Movie Draft - BONUS ROUNDS

    Wow, had about a half dozen guesses, but none of them were either of those two. I think I saw both of those, but they left absolutely zero impression on me. Makes sense they would chase you out of the theater. My money was on Wild Wild West and Wing Commander, with a dark horse bet if you...

    Hey @Mr. S£im Citrus, I forgot to ask: What were the two movies in 1999 so bad they killed the whole medium for you?

    At least the Mets were in the World Series a mere 5 years ago ... just as the Kings were bringing in Vlade to rescue us from a then nearly-decade long playoff drought. Our dumpster fire can be seen from space.

    Alphabet Movie Draft Playoffs - Round 1 Bracket #2

    With similarly due respect, I think this might be more of a Generational Gap thing than a #TwoAmericas thing. When Harlem Nights hit theaters, I was wearing out my VHS copy of The Land Before Time. I knew Beverly Hills Cop had a cool theme song, and Balki from Perfect Strangers in it, and little...

    Alphabet Movie Draft Playoffs - Round 1 Bracket #2

    Dude, Point Break. How could I possibly vote against Point Break (and Zombieland)? ... Well, because KainLear and Turgenev have Seven Samurai, Casablanca, Edge of Tomorrow, Amelie, Black Swan, and The Dark Knight. And those are just the ones I already personally own and have watched in excess...

    Alphabet Movie Draft Playoffs - Round 1

    I'm suspecting all of these match-ups are going to be a challenge for me. There's not a single list posted with which I'd be supremely disappointed to spend a few months of quarantine. Baja's list epitomizes what this game is all about. "Hey, you like movies? You got some free time? Here's a...
